TURNING 40...Gift Ideas Needed.

A very good friend of mine is turning 40 and his wife is throwing a big surprise party. Iím looking for gift ideas something a little off the wall but not that cheesy over the hill garb like the cane with the mirror and horn etc.. Something funny, something that is useful or interesting and good for a laugh or a comment. A little more info that may or may not be helpful... Like many of us here, he likes sports, music, outdoors and enjoys traveling with his family (in their travel trailer not an AirstreamÖIím working on that). Please share some recommendations of a gift appreciate your input.
Regards,
AZstreamin

If you're working on him getting into Airstreaming then I think a set of pink flamingos is in order. Maybe one with a hat and the other with a cane.

There is a company here in the valley that will come out in the middle of the night and plant 50 Pink Flamingoes on your front lawn. They come back later to pick them up....

Remember that "leg lamp" in the movie "A Christmas Story"? We got one of those for a guy turning 30 (this was in the '80's, ok?). Made up a sign the said "Happy Birthday (fill in your expletive here). He loved it. Stayed in his den for years.

There are company's set-up to do this for you. Much like the yard sign places, know the storks when a baby is born, etc.

Here's a link that may help you find someone in your area: http://www.flamingosurpris.com/orderNew.htm

Florist shops in your area may also be able to help...

Some company's are set up that they will "flock you" and you have to pay to get rid of them as a fundraising campaign.
